The kinetics and products of the gas-phase reactions of ozone with methyl methacrylate, methyl acrylate, and ethyl acrylate have been investigated at 760 Torr total pressure of air and 294 +/- 2 K. The rate coefficients obtained (in cm(3) molecule(-1) s(-1) units) were as follows: k(methyl methacrylate) = (6.7 +/- 0.9) x 10(-18), k(methyl acrylate) = (0.95(More)
Rate coefficients for the gas-phase reactions of OH radicals with four unsaturated alcohols, 3-methyl-3-buten-1-ol (k1), 2-buten-1-ol (k2), 2-methyl-2-propen-1-ol (k3) and 3-buten-1-ol (k4), were measured using two different techniques, a conventional relative rate method and the pulsed laser photolysis-laser induced fluorescence technique. The Arrhenius(More)
The gas phase reactions of allyl alcohol with OH radicals and ozone have been investigated using different experimental systems. The rate coefficient for the OH reaction is reported in the temperature range 231-373 K, k(OH) = (5.7 +/- 0.2) x 10(-12) exp[(650 +/- 52)/T] cm3 molecule(-1) s(-1). This reaction is found to be pressure independent between 33 and(More)
The gas-phase degradation of lindane (γ-isomer of hexachlorocyclohexane) towards OH radical was investigated under atmospheric conditions at the large outdoor European simulation chamber (EUPHORE) in Valencia, Spain. The rate coefficient for the reaction of hydroxyl radicals with lindane was measured using a conventional relative rate technique leading to a(More)
The gas phase reactions of selected alkenes (isoprene, myrcene, ocimene, and 1,3-cyclohexadiene) with NO2 under dark condition have been investigated at T ∼ 298 K and P ∼ 760 Torr of purified air. The kinetic studies were performed under pseudo-first-order conditions using a large excess of NO2 concentration to those of the alkenes. The rate coefficients(More)
The rate constants for the reactions of OH with three pentanols have been determined in the range 267-373 K and P=100 Torr. The data obtained were (in units of cmmolecules): k(1pentanol) = (6.7 ± 3.8)10 exp [(132±176)/T], k(2-pentanol) = (5.2 ± 1.8)10 exp [(218±116)/T], k(3-pentanol) = (5.8 ± 2.3)10 exp [(164±118)/T]. The present work provides the first(More)
The nitrogen oxides (NO(x)) decomposition on illuminated TiO(2) surfaces has been widely studied, but little is known about the subsequent formation of non-nitrogen containing products. In this study, TiO(2) coated glass surfaces and TiO(2) films with nitrate anions (either premixed with TiO(2) as KNO(3) or deposited from gaseous NO(x)) are irradiated with(More)
The gas phase atmospheric degradation of diazinon has been investigated at the large outdoor European Photoreactor (EUPHORE) in Valencia, Spain. The rate constant for reaction of diazinon with OH radicals was measured using a conventional relative rate method with di-n-buthylether as reference compound being k = (3.5 ± 1.2) × 10⁻¹¹ cm³ molecule⁻¹ s⁻¹ at 302(More)
Within the framework of the European Life+-funded project PhotoPAQ (Demonstration of Photocatalytic remediation Processes on Air Quality), which was aimed at demonstrating the effectiveness of photocatalytic coating materials on a realistic scale, a photocatalytic de-polluting field site was set up in the Leopold II tunnel in Brussels, Belgium. For that(More)
Nitrous acid (HONO), as a precursor of the hydroxyl radical (OH), plays an important role in the photochemistry of the troposphere, especially in the polluted urban atmosphere. A field campaign was conducted to measure atmospheric HONO concentration and that of other pollutants (such as NO2 and particle mass concentration) in the autumn of 2009 at Shanghai(More)
